end jeek. this is one my favorites, one "los angeles times" story involved a councilwoman, named laura chick, who was unhappy as what she saw gender based incentive from her colleagues. "the los angeles times" headline was quote, chick accuses some of her male colleagues of sexism. [laughter] homicide victims rarely talk to police. [laughing] totally serious. i'm totally serious. hispanics ace spanish test. [laughter] and the last one, midget sues grocer, cites belittling remarks. [laughter] all those are real. so for some of you who have attended this event as i have over the years our annual funniest video segment is truly unique and is often the highlight. normally it has nothing to do with bias. sometimes nothing to do even with politics. it shows we're basically shameless enough to do anything at all we can to amuse you. so just plain funny stuff we found while trolling the airwaves. some of it is gaffs that we've caught. sometimes it is other pieces we blatantly steal with full credit of course. but before offering the best funniest videos of 2012, we want to show you the best of
